Updated each Monday leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft from Las Vegas, Chargers.com will look at whom draft analysts have the team selecting at No. 6 overall:

Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports – QB Justin Herbert, Oregon

Last updated: March 9, 2020

"The Chargers could target a QB in free agency and that could change their draft plans -- namely, they could take an offensive linemen -- but for now they're in the quarterback business. The big question is whether it'll be Herbert or Jordan Love."

Chad Reuter, NFL.com – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Last updated: March 6, 2020

"Love told reporters that the Chargers were among the teams he met with at the combine, and L.A. may be willing to chalk up Love's high interception total in 2019 (17) to a function of the QB trying to do too much for an average team."

Will Brinson, CBS Sports – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Last updated: March 5, 2020

"Not a Justin Herbert fan here, but I do think the Chargers are kind of rebooting and need to get a young quarterback, so I'll roll with the trendy thing and give them Jordan Love."

Josh Edwards, CBS Sports – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Cynthia Frelund, NFL.com – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

Last updated: March 4, 2020

"Tagovailoa's 2019 resume shows quick-pass mastery (11.4 yards per attempt on throws made in under 2.5 seconds, the best figure in the FBS) and a 15:0 TD-to-INT ratio on play-action passes (also tops in the FBS). Not to mention, over the past two seasons, he ranks first in the FBS in deep-passing efficiency (19.8 yards per attempt on throws of 20-plus air yards). The potential to optimize the use of Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler stands out, too -- pairing those two with this particular QB projects VERY well."

Dane Brugler, The Athletic – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

Last updated: March 4, 2020

Subscription required: "Tagovailoa is the wild card of the draft. Talking to teams in Indianapolis, they are taking a cautious approach, but until they can see him throw on April 9, it is anyone's guess how high he will be drafted."

Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Last updated: March 3, 2020

"The Chargers new offensive coordinator has roots with Norv Turner, a head coach who was with Philip Rivers during the most aggressive stages of his career. With Love, the Chargers get their quarterback of the future who isn't afraid to let it rip from any platform."

Todd McShay, ESPN – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Last updated: March 2, 2020

Subscription required: "In apples-to-apples situations, like the Senior Bowl and the combine, Love stood out. He has a huge arm, strong instincts and mobility in the pocket. NFL teams want quarterbacks who can create in today's game, and that's exactly what Love does."

Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com – OT Mekhi Becton, Louisville

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"The Chargers could grab Oregon QB Justin Herbert here, but if they aren't sold on him, addressing the offensive line is a must."

Browse through the latest photos of 2020 prospects that draft analysts see as potential fits for the Bolts at pick No. 6.

Michael Renner, Pro Football Focus – LB Isaiah Simmons, Clemson

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"Yes, it's a selfish pick on my end, but who doesn't want to see Derwin James paired up with bigger Derwin James? Instead of modern offenses giving defensive coordinators nightmares, it's about time someone flipped the script. Adding another movable chess piece that runs a sub-4.4 40 would do just that."

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report – QB Justin Herbert, Oregon

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"The 6'6", 236 pound athlete with a big right arm and impressive mobility could draw in the West Coast fans while also giving head coach Anthony Lynn a young quarterback to groom and grow with. There are many options on the table, but without projecting trades, Herbert is the best choice pre-free agency."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"They need to get a developmental passer and Love would seem to fit. He didn't play well last season, but he's a talent."

Trevor Sikkema, The Draft Network – OT Mekhi Becton, Louisville

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"If the Los Angeles Chargers aren't taking a quarterback with their top pick, expect it to be one of the top four offensive linemen. Here they go with the most physically imposing one."

Bucky Brooks, NFL.com – QB Justin Herbert, Oregon

Last updated: Feb. 25, 2020

"Herbert could be a nice fit as an athletic, high-IQ passer with intriguing physical tools."

Charley Casserly, NFL.com – QB Justin Herbert, Oregon

Last updated: Feb. 18, 2020

"With the Philip Rivers era now in the rearview, the Bolts are looking for their next franchise QB. Are they comfortable with Herbert here? Is he the QB they want to lead the team? Would they have to trade up for him? Or might they address the position in free agency?"

Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN – OT Jedrick Wills, Alabama

Last updated: Feb. 18, 2020

Subscription required: "A quarterback obviously makes sense here too, but with Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert off the board, they shouldn't reach. They could instead look to free agency for their 2020 starter, or stick with Tyrod Taylor, who won't turn the ball over."
